Sarah Palin is certainly a famous name we hear of today and one of the things that have been drawing quite a ruckus is that of her image made in one of the Cabbage Patch Kids.
All proceeds from the auction, which begins Thursday and ends Nov. 4, will benefit the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. Jakks Pacific will also auction six limited edition 25th-anniversary dolls that have been created to look identical to the original Cabbage Patch Kids that were first released in 1983.
Actually, it is not just Palin that will be up for grabs. Barack Obama, John McCain and Joe Biden also have Cabbage Patch doll imitations that will surely be something any collector would want to have. Further, the cause for offering them up for grabs at eBay is certainly something most people will want check out and bid for as long as they can afford them.
“These four folks in particular seemed like the perfect candidates, if you will, to become one-of-a-kind Cabbage Patch Kids,” said Jakks Pacific Inc. spokeswoman Genna Rosenberg. “We’ve had a great history with making celebrity look-alikes with these Kids. We’ve done everyone from Elvis to Donald Trump to Ellen (DeGeneres) and Oprah (Winfrey).”
